There is no mention whether your grandfather in at home or in a care facility.
If the latter, you may wish to speak to a priest who acts as chaplain for Catholics in the facilitate. Otherwise you can bring the question to his parish priest or yours.
Certainly, you do need to consult a priest for him to receive the Sacrament of Anointing.
May God bless your grandfather, your family, and you.
God bless you for your loving Conner for your grandfather.
I'm not quite sure what kind of facility it is, but he is not on the locked unit, but since he's not a member of a parish here, I don't know which priest to call. I'm not either for that matter, so I'm not really sure how all this works, but I would like him to receive this Sacrament before he gets much worse.

Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
Thank you so much, seriously. I really appreciate this. O Blessed Mother, you are the consoler of the afflicted and we ask your intercession for all those needing the Sacrament of Extreme Unction. Amen!

Why not ask him, "Grandpa, is is alright if I ask a priest to come visit you?" I don't know how advanced his Alzheimer's is, you could always be more specific. Then, if he's willing, call a priest to come and give last rites. If your grandpa says he isn't willing, ask him again every time you visit and pray he changes his mind.
He'll be in my prayers tonight.
This is really good advice and I think I'll try this so that he asks for or agrees to it. Thank you!
